    The so-called class-invariant homomorphism ψ measures the Galois module structure of torsors-under a finite flat group scheme G-which lie in the image of a coboundary map associated to an isogeny between (Néron models of) abelian varieties with kernel G. When the varieties are elliptic curves with semi-stable reduction and the order of G is coprime to 6, it is known that the homomorphism ψ vanishes on torsion points. In this paper, using Weil restrictions of elliptic curves, we give the construction, for any prime number p > 2, of an abelian variety A of dimension p endowed with an isogeny (with kernel μ p ) whose coboundary map is surjective. In the case when A has rank zero and the p-part of the Picard group of the base is non-trivial, we obtain examples where ψ does not vanish on torsion points. © Springer-Verlag 2007.
